A molecular approach was chosen to analyse the correlation between bacterial colonisation and rosy discolouration of masonry and lime wall paintings of two historically important buildings in Austria and Germany. The applied molecular method included PCR amplification of genes encoding the small subunit rRNA of bacteria (16S rDNA), genetic fingerprinting by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), construction of 16S rDNA clone libraries, and comparative phylogenetic sequence analyses… CONTINUE READING
